From the outside it looks like a little gem in the heart of a bustling street. We were greeted at the door by an enthusiastic and polite doorman out onto the beautiful balcony overlooking the public gardens but that's where the awe and wonder stopped for me. I had a great recommendation from my mother who was here in May... More

Attended a wedding in July at this stunning hotel. We were outside all evening. The food was mouth watering. The setting perfect. The opera singer was superb then we danced until the noise curfew! A truly amazing afternoon and evening finished with fireworks with Mt Etna in the background. Perfect

A lovely Hotel that resonates with the elegance and charm of Sicily. My husband and I stayed in a Deluxe room with sumptuous bed linens and a balcony over looking the swimming pool and sea below. In addition to the sea, we enjoyed stunning views of the scenery which surrounds the hotel and were thrilled when we discovered the hotel's... More

So nice! This hotel is friendly, five star service, similar to the gracious hospitality I encountered at Bellevue Serene in Sorrento last year. I was impressed with the gym, which was kind of small, but then again, most Euro gyms are, but at least it had a separate room with Pilates blocks and weights. In total, two weight machines, two...
